    Default Questions from strangers

    There is one thing about owning an EB that I still can't get used to.

    Whenever we go out to either the park or a Pet store etc it never fails someone will ask how much we paid for our dog.

    We all know these babies are not cheap but these questions coming from total strangers make me a bit uncomfortable.

    Does anyone else have similar experiences and what do you say.

    Being from the South, maybe it is a manners thing for me, but I was raised to not ask questions like that.

    even from friends I prefer not to elaborate. I'm with you and don't find any disrespect in just saying "a good amount of coin". not much else needed aside from that but that's just me.

    It is none of their business; we get that question also and usually respond with, "Some Bulldogs are pretty spendy."

    Yep - get it all the time.... I usually ignore it and do not answer..... if they persist, I normally say (nicely) do some research cause it varies

    It's very annoying! I feel it's none of Anybodys business! I just say he was expensive but well worth it!

    I've been pretty lucky and have only been asked that only a couple of times by people I know. I think it's a very rude question To ask someone you don't even know nor have ever met before and it's none of their business. Being as the price can range from 1600 and higher, it's not information I care give! Not sure what I would say if someone asked me that at a store, but it would might be "how much you make a year do you make?

    I hear it ALL the time! Since I am heavily involved in rescue I also hear "are they cheaper??" I just smile as pretty as I can and say I paid a lot for them (I have 3...one I bought and 2 I adopted) there is no such thing as a cheap bulldog!
